We're glad you asked because we're proud of what people that we have trained are saying about us...
We're better...at providing solder training amid the corona virus times. For those customers who still deem it essential to train their employees we are putting into place many safeguards to protect students. We have greatly decreased our maximum class size in order to maintain social distancing guidelines. Our staff makes sure the areas are wiped down at the beginning an ending of the day. The classrooms, whether at one of our locations or on board the mobile training center, are equipped with hand sanitizer in help prevent the spread of the virus. These and several more precautions are being made in order to insure the health of our students.
We're better...at providing solder training in the format you need; at our facility, your facility, or using our Mobile Training Center. In fact, we are the only training center who can bring the entire solder training experience to you. The BEST Mobile Training Center is a cost-effective way to have practical, comfortable solder certification and training at your site using modern tools while not being directly inside the plant.
We're better...at providing more practically-oriented soldering instructors. Both our full-time solder instructors and trainers are not just "book learned", they have practical experience as well. This experience has been gained by working on rework/repair projects at BEST as part of the rework/repair division. They have worked on hundreds of different projects, giving them a vast experience base to draw upon. In addition, BEST instructors have worked at either OEMS or contract manufacturers, meaning they can speak your language and bring practical examples into their solder certification instruction.
We're better...at making sure that our solder instructors can follow US DoD protocols, whether that be on a base, a ship, or at a contractor's location. We have military-trained 2M instructors that know the materials.
We're better...at providing a variety of options for delivering solder certification and wire harness training services, including having Spanish-speaking master trainers available.
